I'm a Dutch 2d Game Artist.
- 2D Game Artist
I studied media design in Utrecht and attended extra art classes in the weekend. Since my main interest had always been video games, I wrote my graduation thesis on the subject of 'Game Design for Specific Audiences'. It fascinates me to be able to create worlds for others to enjoy and interact with and the ever changing technologies challenge me to keep educating myself and experiment with new possibilities.
Since my studies I have built up professional experience in many facets of game development: 2D & 3D art, programming, game design and animation, as well as experience as a flash designer/-developer.
I worked for a number of different game studios and even though I focus on art, the whole of game development interests me.
I worked on two internationally published PC/Console games and many native/web casual games. I learned the possibilities and constraints of HTML5 game development, while working for casual game giant Spil Games.
I am currently working at Game House Europe.
I always try to think from the perspective of the end user and adjust my designs accordingly, rather than pushing my own preferred style.
